The Loving Butterfly Watch by Jaquet Droz
Luxury watchmaker Jaquet Droz has introduced The Loving Butterfly, a distinctive, original watch in support of the 5th annual Only Watch event.
For almost three centuries, highly respected Jaquet Droz has set time under the banner of wonder, excellence, and constantly renewed creativity. A truly unique and masterful, luxury watch brand.
For many years, Jaquet Droz has been a partner of Only Watch which is a charity event that aids the fight against muscular dystrophy. The proceeds of the Only Watch event sale will benefit the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy.
Jaquet Droz will offer The Loving Butterfly watch. This stunning luxurious looking watch is published as a single original and will ultimately be auctioned in Monaco on September 28, 2013.
The watch represents an historical design that was drawn by one of the legendary automata, produced by Pierre Jaquet Droz in the 18th century. The Swiss watchmaker resurrects the fascination of the Enlightenment period for architecture and botany, with a cherub riding in a carriage pulled by a butterfly.
The Loving Butterfly watch is an echo of the values defended by Jaquer Droz: the right to innocence, the power of the imagination as well as confidence in one’s own dreams. This design with its romantic and poetic naturalism decorates the face of the Petite Heure Minute.
Jaquet Droz craftsmen combined their best skills to create this unique piece. Engraved and then painted, the gold decor was first worked like a bas-relief before being applied to the Grand Feu enamel dial.
In addition, The Loving Butterfly has an exposed oscillating weight. The Only Watch name is engraved on the case back to remind the owner of the special charitable event, supporting the Muscular Dystrophy cause.
We applaud the unique philosophy of generosity by Jaquet Droz. The Swiss watch brand is already synonymous with virtuoso watchmaking, the event also embodies Jaquet Droz’s philanthropic values, its support for cutting edge medical research and continued trust in a bright and serene future.
